Sergio Aguero is set for a shock return for Pep Guardiola’s Manchester City in the Premier League clash against with Stoke City this weekend.
The Argentine forward had broken his ribs just 12 days ago when a taxi in which he was travelling, crashed into a lamp post in Amsterdam.
Aguero was in Netherlands to attend a pop concert but he suffered the horrific injury during a late night accident.
But the in-form Man City has now been pictured training with the first-team squad and sources close to the Manchester club revealed that the Argentine is in line for a shock return in the Premier League game against Stoke.
Initial reports had claimed that the Argentine would be out of action for months but now the Daily Mirror reports that he will be ready to face Stoke City on Sunday.
Meanwhile, flat cap wearing Pep Guardiola has taken total football to a “new level”.
Meanwhile, Italy legend Arrigo Sacchi believes that Pep Guardiola has taken total football to a “new level”.
While speaking at the Aspire for Sport Congress at Stamford Bridge, Sacchi said: “[Guardiola] has carried forward total football even more.
“He is adding to it, making it better.
“He is a great coach and Manchester City play in his way with a real style.
“We’re friends. We’ve known each other for a long time. He came to see how I worked when I was at Real Madrid.
“He’s an obsessive, a perfectionist, he thinks deeply about football.
“He’s one of the top ten coaches since the 1950s who have contributed to the evolution of football.
“He’s in the tradition of Ajax’s Rinus Michels and Cruyff. My football is a belief in total football. It comes from Ajax.
“Guardiola once said to me, ‘I owe everything to you and Cruyff’. I said to him, ‘Without Rinus Michels, there would have been no Cruyff and no Guardiola today.'”
Sacchi also said that he is a huge fan of the Premier League and in his next life he wants to cach in England.
He added: “It’s a very exacting league. Manchester City are now going at 100mph but it’s difficult to maintain this rhythm, this pace, until May.
“Manchester United are dangerous. And Liverpool.
“I watched Chelsea vs Manchester City and it seemed like a different sport. It was an extraordinary match, one of the best I’ve ever seen. Fantastic.
“In my next life, I want to coach in England!”
